The Great Firewall (GFW)
simplified Chinese: 防火长城; traditional Chinese: 防火長城
Through a combination of legislative actions and technologies enforced by the People’s Republic of China to regulate the Internet domestically, called the Great FireWall, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) blocks information coming from outside the country.
Residents of China use a VPN to get information blocked by the CCP. VPN stands for “Virtual Private Network” and describes the opportunity to establish a protected network connection when using public networks. VPNs encrypt your internet traffic and disguise your online identity. This makes it more difficult for third parties to track your activities online and steal data. Do not use TikTok.
I am told that many residents of Hong Kong are attempting to leave.
